Introduction of a drive-through pharmacy to help patients/carers collect medication without having to set foot inside the hospital. This allowed for continuation of rheumatic medications to prevent missed doses and possible flares.

by Kalveer Flora | 5 months ago | in Rheumatology

The drive through model has been well received by patients and clinics as it has provided patients who regularly come into hospital to collect their ‘hospital only’ medications with ease and not the need to park and walk into the building to collect. 

All patients are sent a text message informing them their medications are ready of collection and any patient who does not have this option will be contacted by telephone. 

 

What is needed to sustain the change?

A dedicated room/building to allow the safe and secure storage of medication moving forward. 

What is your region?

Sounds like an attractive option Kalveer. We are looking at drive thru phlebotomy in our area and I will mention your model too.
